What Would Mary Berry Do?
What Would Mary Berry Do?

Bookmark of Spalding have chosen What Would Mary Berry Do? by Claire Sandy as its Book of the Week.

To celebrate the return of Mary Berry to our screens on The Great British Bake Off, this week we are offering 20 per cent off What Would Mary Berry Do? (RRP £7.99), the perfect holiday read to keep you chuckling.

Bubbly Marie Dunwoody has almost everything; a lovely husband, three wonderful children and a business of her own. But her cupcakes are terrible, her meringues are runny and her biscuits are rock-hard. She cannot bake for toffee. She definitely cannot make toffee!

At the school bake sale Marie decides she can no longer ignore the disappointed looks of her children, or continue to be shamed by her neighbour and nemesis Lucy Gray (who seems to whip up perfect profiteroles with one hand, whilst ironing bed sheets with the other). Marie vows to follow – to the letter – recipes from the Queen of Baking, and at all times ask, ‘What would Mary Berry do?’

Marie begins to realise that the wise words of Mary Berry can help her with more than just a Victoria sponge in this heart-warming and laugh out loud read.

Bookmark is offering 20 per cent off this book until Wednesday, August 20 with the voucher contained in the Spalding Guardian of August 14.
